Well well well….. the boozy infusions continue. I’ll be honest guys. I made this last year. I copied myself. Is that forbidden? Not allowed? Let’s hope not. And if it is, totally don’t care. You know me – TOTAL RULE BREAKER! I even used the same photos. EGADS! But…. Rhubarbarians lovers should get to experience vodka that tastes like Andes peppermint candies right?! Right.
In that post from last year I went into the deliciousness that is Christmas crack – Ghirardelli peppermint bark. Total. Christmas. Crack. #amiright or #amiright?! Man, I could eat like a whole bag in 5 minutes. Which actually isn’t very much cause they totally make you think you’re gonna get a lot, cause, you know, whole bag, then you open it up and there are only 5 pieces! What a jip. Except not, because it is seriously the best christmas crack ever. For some reason I just got Nothing Compares 2U sung by Sinead O Connor stuck in my head. Wow. It really is crack. Or corn. You know….. same thing these day.
- 8 oz vodka
- 10 Andes peppermint candies broken up into thirds or halves
Place your pieces of candy into a glass jar with tight fitting lid.
Pour the vodka into the jar and put the lid on tight.
SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE! Shake some more, then shake some more. Leave on the counter and give a good shake every time you see it. 24 hours (or so) later, strain through a fine mesh strainer into a cup or jar.
This vodka is really pepperminty with a hint of chocolate candy. If you want more of a thicker liquor, add more candies and let them completely dissolve into the vodka for a few days.
Um……….. so now I’m totally listening to Nothing Compares 2U. Stuck in your head too??! bwaaaaaahahahahaha.
Merry Christmas time friends!
